Don't call it burn out. It's not the real problem

Post by MrsWargamer » Wed Jan 27, 2016 10:14 am

I've read posts by you men over the years mentioning 'war gaming burn out'. I submit you are or were not actually suffering 'burn out'.

You were possibly just having trouble getting excited by 'yet more of the same'.

I've seen this in other parts of the gaming world. After all, how can you seriously get excited over 5-10 years of more or less the same experience?

My first board game war game experience was Tactics II. I don't think they could have marketed 10 versions of the same concept successfully.

I think what has happened to gaming of the electronic sort, regardless of device it was played on, is it was just too easy to do the same thing too often.

You are not burnt out, they just haven't made it genuinely different enough in most cases.

I've seen some nice looking offering show up for war gaming during the last 10 years. They really failed to grab me though because "oh well I already have that more or less". That isn't burn out.

I like buying shoes. But eventually you run out of interest in buying sandals if they all look the same. It's not relevant to mention its a new brand. It won't matter the process of how it was made if it looks the same on your foot.

men like to moan more than most women tbh MrsWargamer, with some making it a hobby and a passion for doing it, so yes agree

In fact who made either of you an authority on the subject matter?
